    @daver no mate. Sorry. It does not. I was just commenting on the ergonomics.

    Interesting to see the Original XBox Live may be coming back on original Xboxes later this year

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DVKwTtJtS8&feature=emb_rel_end

    Guess its too much to hope it will work on XB1 with the way the emulation works, but wonder if there's a chance it will work on the 360

    This might show Microsoft the level of interest - would be great to play Midtown Madness again

    Anyone else had an update to the dashboard? Just started up my X and see some odd placeholders such as 'XXX' for GamePass and 'YYY'for the perks.

    Reads: Enjoy these YYY as a benefit of your Xbox XXX Ultimate membership.

    I'm in one of the beta channels so I guess they a buggering about with something...

    Just noticed that I randomly got a 5 euro gift card from Microsoft some days ago. Check your messages, just in case.

    I have just enough money to get myself Prince of Persia and Far Cry Classic for free. Need to think about it. I was thinking about Crimson Skies too, but I still have a feeling it will end up on GwG eventually, like so many OG Xbox games.

    Edit: okay, I've decided to grab POP 2008 and also POP Classic. Why not.

    I also want to take a minute to mention how totally screwed up it is that I had to buy these games through my old Xbox 360 itself, since the browser seems unable to process any 360 game purchases (they still haven't fixed that issue) and the Xbox One won't allow you to buy 360 games with your wallet money.

    Given how adamant MS is on their plans for long-lasting backwards compatibility, you'd think they would also try to make these games actually easy to buy. Good for me that I still have the 360. This shouldn't happen.

    It doesn't seem like too much of a chore to use PayPal or a debit card in the grand scheme of things. At least you can play these games on the Xbox One.

    It's not, but it doesn't make sense that you can use your wallet money on the 360 but not on the Xbox One.

    I also forgot to mention how much faster the 360 store frontend is. The X1 is a shit show and I can only hope MS actually worked on making the new console faster on that regard.

    I would like to buy a wireless headset for Xbox One and have a budget in mind of up to £200 or thereabouts. What makes and models are generally recommended?

    I had a turtle beach around that price. Wld not purchase again. I think arctic reviews well.

    I just use the headset that came with my samsung galaxy now. I just need to hear footsteps!

    I’ve got a Turtle Beach Stealth 700. “only” paid £70 for it (think it was on offer) and I’ve been very happy with it. Used for 6 months, the surround sound works really well and it supports Atmos. Can easily hear steps and pinpoint movement around you with them.

    EG did a round up not long back. I've been considering the Arctis 9X as they are xbox one/series X ready. Wireless and bluetooth simultaneously so game/chat + music/podcast from phone is doable. Approx £175 but stocks are thin.

    I've read they are 'louder' than the 3s and 5s but not certain.

    They do look tempting but I may go for the 3s (non-bluetooth) as when I'm playing I tend to go with the soundtrack, or nothing but sound fx. Don't really think a wire to the pad is too much of an issue sat on sofa and the 3s are a LOT cheaper. Still, anything better than my Tesco £8 earbuds I guess!

    I've had the Arctis 5 for yonks, use them every night and love them. Very comfy, clear sound, and the cable never bothers me.

    Haven't looked at the wireless ones myself, but I'd imagine they're good.

    I have the Arctis 7 and they are decent. The ear cups are a little shallow and the sound isn't amazing, but the wireless connection is fantastic and they are very comfortable once in the right position, provided your ears don't protrude too much.

    Got a mate wanting a deal on Xbox Gold. Told him the price has gone up so you can't get a £30 job any more and "deals" are few & far between lately.

    Shopped around a bit and noticed CDKEYS have an EU code for £39 or UK code for £44. Will the EU code work for a regular UK Xbox Live member?

    I have the Arctis 9x, they’re great. Not much else to say really, they work superbly with the Xbox.

    I've redeemed an EU code before from CDKeys, was fine.

    Alternatively CDKeys still do the Brazil 12 months Gold for £23.99, if your mate is comfortable enough with using a VPN (obviously connected to Brazil) to redeem the code I'd thoroughly recommend giving that a whirl.

    Thanks all for the advice on headsets.

    Nowhere however seems to have the Arctis 9x in stock..:may opt for the Arctis 1 wireless version instead (plus can use them on the Switch)

    I just ordered the Astro A50s at the weekend. Expensive enough at 300 quid but I had my turtle beach elite 800 for close to 8 years now So figured I’d get my moneys worth out of them. They’re guaranteed to work with the series x too and you can buy a PlayStation base for compatibility with that too. Really looking forward to getting them next week.

    Could the Arctis 9x still run via wire from a PS5 controller?

    @SnowmanRR Depending on how much of a hurry you're in Amazon reckon to have them in stock on the 14th.

    @robthehermit Thanks for that, glad I didn't press the button last night and order something else.
